Overheard

 

What the news headlines at the moment are telling us

is that dedicated individuals, not bloated corporations,

are what American greatness is all about.

First, Captain Sully, with his cool competence,

and now Captain Phillips, with his uncomplicated courage.

The exploits of such heroes

keep breaking through the relentless beat of bad news

with indomitable retro derring-do.
